Windows Server 2012 VSS error "The system writer is missing"

Advertisement
October 11

Hello All,
I have a HP server that I have just installed Server 2012 standard, SQL Server 2012 and Sharepoint 2013.
When I try to take bare metal backup I get the error: "The system writer is missing", I have tried the backup as the local admin and domain admin.
The backup will only work if I decide to back up C:, once I select "Bare Metal" or "System State" the backup fails.
I have tried this solution: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc734021.aspx but have not had any luck yet.
When I run the command "vssadmin list writers" I can not see "System Writer" listed.
How can I add/turn on the System Writer?

Hi,
The system writer fails due to the fact that the trusted installer & system accounts are missing permissions to files in the directory %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\.
To resolve this issue, please run the following commands from an administrative elevated Command Window:
CD c:\windows\system32
Takeown /f %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\* /a
icacls %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\*.* /grant "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(RX)"
icacls %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\*.* /grant "NT Service\trustedinstaller:(F)"
icacls %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\*.* /grant "BUILTIN\Users:(RX)"
For more information, please also refer to the following links:
